You can’t expect to go unnoticed when the new coffee shop in town is named after the “new girl” and run by her mother. For high school Senior, Lori, pronounced Lor-ay, by her French mother, this is all she wants, to finish up the last few months before graduation, flying under the radar.
From the start, Lori falls prey to curious glances from people in town and catty behavior from beautiful girls like Mandy, who is not a fan of Lori’s budding friendship with her boyfriend, Brandon, whose dad just happens to be dating Lori’s mom. The two become inseparable, as the relationship between their parents intensifies, inspiring new songwriter and guitarist Brandon to pen the lyrics of “Falling in Love at a Café.”
With the end of the summer comes the realization that the duo would have to part ways, leaving one headed for college and the other staying in the small town of Poplar. Their friendship is put to the ultimate test, with decisions made that will impact not only their future, but their parents as well.
